3 to 4 loads of laundry seems like an awful lot for an elderly couple but if you call your local churches and even your electric company they usually have or know of programs to help the elderly. They may even know of government assistance programs that they may be eligible for.

Deb, as long as the ignitor is glowing, it's probably your coils on the valve. Look at number 13 and 14 on the attachment. Part number for the booster coil is 306106 and 306105 for the secondary coil. Not a hard job, the coils slide right off after removing a screw and then replace the harness. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: our washing machine (Zanussi ZWF 1632 W) flashes 5 times

This is a motor problem the end light flashing 5 times indicates error E50. The motor has either got wet or has just failed i would suggest trying to dry it 1st but i would suspect the motor has gone down to earth usually having to replace it. The part no.

Renting and Paying the Gas Bill


This past week I changed out an old hot air furnace in a rental unit that made me question why the tenant did not go to the owner and offer to pay more rent in exchange for getting the furnace changed out sooner. If you are a renter that is paying the gas bill, then you need to think about this.
The hot air furnace was at least 60 years old. It had been coal fired furnace that was converted to gas many decades ago. The pilot light of this beast was more of a torch than a pilot light. When the thermostat called for heat the flame roared for 15 minutes before the exterior blower unit that was added when the furnace was converted to gas, started up to move air through the furnace and into the house.

As I was starting up the new unit, which took up less than 1/3 of the space of the old beast, the renter came and sat down on the basement steps looking on in amazement. How would that little thing make enough heat for the house? A few minutes later those questions were put to rest very quickly.

After starting the new furnace and burning off the oil that always smokes up the house a bit on a new startup the new little unit had the house warm as toast and was shutting down. Wow, that took less time than the old beast took to just warm up!

The renter related to me how that the old furnace cost over one hundred dollars a month just to run the pilot over the summer months. The wintertime heating bills were many times higher than that. The difference between the bills of the old unit and the bills that will be coming now will be unbelievable. A savings of 40-50% is not at all out of the question.

Now, if you are renting and are paying the bill to feed an old monster of a heating system, I suggest that you make a proposal to your landlord. Offer to pay a bit more rent in exchange for a new heating system. Not only will you decrease your gas bills enough to pay some extra rent and still come out ahead, but you will have the peace of mind that you have a safer heating system under the roof that you also live under.

What year was this sold? i recieved it from someone 5 years ago and she said it was 10 years old. i would like to know its real age


LOOK FOR THE MAKE AND MODEL OF THE WASHING MACHINE AND YOU MIGHT, JUST MIGHT, SEE THE MFG DATE AROUND THE SAME AREA. YOU CAN FIND USED WASHER MACHINES DOWN HERE FOR AROUND 75 BUCKS. DRYERS ARE ABOUT THE SAME OR MAYBE LESS. LOOK IN THE PAPERS OR LOCAL CRAIGSLIST. GOOD LUCK.

Father is 3 times as old as his daughter.In 12 years father will be 1 year less than twice his daugthers age.What is their age?


So the father is 3 times as old as his daughter.
Let F represent the age of the fatherLet D represet the age of the daughter
So we know from the first sentence,
F = 3 * D
From the second sentence, 12 years from now the father is 1 year les than twice his daughters age,
First, lets assume it's not 12 years from now (to avoid confusion), we would haveF + 1= 2 * D
But since its 12 years from now, we have to add 12 to both ages
(F + 12) + 1 = 2 * (D + 12)
Let's simplify a bit,

F + 13 = 2 * D + 24F = 2D + 11
Now we have to solve these two equations together, we can plug the first equation into the second,
F = 3 * DF = 2 * D + 11
3 * D = 2 * D + 11D = 11
So the daughter is 11 years old, we can find out how old the father is by plugging into the first equation
F = 3 * DF = 3 * 11F = 33
So the father is 33 and the daughter is 11.

Owners manual


Dear Mupin,
ngafam at your service.

I under stand you have this problem!
I have a kelvinator K605 washing machine that has suddenly halved it's wash time! I can't find my user manual.

At the bottom of this page is a web site for Kelvinator manuals from fixya.com.
But I have some most important advice for you to read first!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This machine is very and an energy gussler!
My advice is not to put your good money into bad!
It's not worth spending a dime to repair!
The new machines cost so much less to operate and will pay for them selves in only a few years!
And the new machines will not wear out you clothes so fast! Top load machines used to use 54 gallons a load.
Todays top load Speed Queen washer uses only 34 gallons!
cost only 549 and out lasts every machine on the market.
It's tested at 8 loads a week for 25 years.
has a 3 year warranty compared to the 1 year of all the rest and a TEN YEAR TRANSMISSION WARRANTY, compared to ONE YEAR of all the rest!
Today you can get 10 to 15 years depending how much you spend on the washer!

The washers and dryers today use so much less water,electricity,and detergent that they pay for them selves after a only a few years.
My advise is, do not put good money into a washer that is over 10 years old!
It is less expensive to buy, run, and operate a new efficient machine!
You will see you water and electric bill reduced!!!!!!!!!
Speed Queen commercial grade top loader uses only 34 gallon of water compared to the others at 54 gallons!
Their front load washer uses, (GET THIS) ONLY 13.9 GALLONS of water and washes in 35 minutes and the clothes are cleaner and last longer cause it uses water agitation instead of a vain to wear out your clothes! How about spinning at 1000 RPM and the clothes come out so dry they are only in the dryer half the time than all the other machines! Thus half the gas or electric bill!!
All my employees have replaced their laundry pairs with Speed Queen!
My Guys call it the, "No Brainer Machine!"

I hope you can utilize the good advice I so enjoy sharing with all the good people we talk to!
